My Mom is staying with me

Recently, while we were in Hawaii, my mom texted and asked if she could stay with me for a couple of weeks around thanksgiving.  Since my dad passed away a couple of months ago, of course I said “sure”.  She has amended her stay till christmas, so I encouraged her to paint something while here.  She picked out this big cabinet at Home Goods.  I tried taking a few pics as she went along.


I helped her with the quote and the lettering.  😉  It’s in Swedish and translates to “To hold and to laugh and to sing”.


She had fun looking around my studio for ideas and came across my tiles.  I think they look awesome on the front.



She’s decided to sell it to help pay for her trip.  She sells a lot of her work on Ebay.  You can find this HERE.  Since it is so heavy, she decided to offer it only to people who can pick it up (at my studio in Issaquah, WA.) or we can try to figure out shipping if need be.

    Stunning work. But you need to amend the eBay info which says it’s available for pickup in California.

    Hi Teesha! Love the detail on this – your mom is very talented!! I’m sorry to hear about your dad. I lost my mom very very suddenly this past August and my dad less than three months later in early November. This has been a very had holiday season! I’m sorry to hear that your family has suffered the same loss.

    Oh, wow. This is an awesome set of photos. What a blessing to have your mom/artist/artist/mom doing arty things and selling art. Come ON!!
    My mom was very arty but she had to work very hard to support six kids and she passed away too early. But I just KNOW she would have had a great time with your mom, and I would have loved to give her tons of art supplies and maintain a shop for her online! So I guess basically, I’m saying how much I enjoyed this post, and also, that I’m jealous. JEALOUS!!

    Okay, not really. But inspired? yes.
